Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to install OpenFoam on my Suse 10.3 server. After spending some time getting the right path for the libraries in the openfoam install directory for the precompiled binaries in When I try to run the applications like Q or mhdFoam. I am getting segmentation faults. Can anyone help me? I am currently trying to install the compiled version and am still working out the library paths for that. any info on that would greatly help as well.

Below is the output of ldd for one of mhdFoam (which is typical output) and a copy of the application giving me a segment fault.

Hello William,
I have an OpenSuse 10.3 box, and the binary release did not work for me, thus I had to compile the sources.
However, as a basic principle, you don't have to fiddle with any environment variable, everything is set up by the bashrc script.
Bottom line, my suggestion is to compile the sources.
